Manipur’s Chief Minister, N Biren Singh, announced on Monday that his government had initiated legal action by filing an FIR against the President and three members of the Editors Guild of India. They stand accused of allegedly exacerbating the ongoing ethnic conflicts in the state, which have persisted for nearly four months.

The Editors Guild had recently asserted that media coverage of the ethnic violence in Manipur was biased and accused the state leadership of taking sides. Chief Minister Singh remarked, “The state government has lodged an FIR against Editors Guild members whom we believe are attempting to escalate tensions in Manipur.”

The individuals named in the FIR are Seema Mustafa, the President of the Editors Guild, as well as Seema Guha, Bharat Bhushan, and Sanjay Kapoor. Guha, Bhushan, and Kapoor had visited the state last month to investigate the media’s coverage of the ethnic violence.

Additionally, the Chief Minister emphasized that before drawing conclusions, they should have engaged with representatives from “all communities” rather than just specific sections.
